of the united states military is we grow and develop people. i mean i've had dozens of these interviews with people, okay, you're getting a few job. this is turning over a new leaf. this is a time to go get it. we've seen people turn their lives around. this is one of the great things about our institution. so clearly these are issues that the policymakers have to come to grips with. our task was put the spotlight on policies, weaknesses, gaps, that's what we have tried to do. i do believe there may be places where barriers should be retained in some way. >> and maybe for some. >> for some purpose. >> maybe promotions or -- >> exactly. >> whether it's a security issue. >> exactly. but what i'm suggesting is that people who are responsible for these policy decisions know what the vital dots look like. they know where they come from. as i -- the report said and in my earlier testimony, the time has passed for us to be having the turf wars on who owns the information. >> i couldn't agree with you more. this is a major challenge for all of us in the senate and house and committee and being
of threat to the united states. both got hit by a big disaster, and i think both responded very, very positively. i think -- i don't disagree with a single thing the president said that he was doing better. in the future, when someone like this guy's father comes into an embassy, we won't just make a little note about it, we're going to pull his visa and see to it that he doesn't get on an airplane. but i think there are a couple of things that the president didn't say that i wish he had talked about. we now know that these terrorists are almost all young male muslims from about a dozen countries. it seems to me that we ought to at least begin a certain degree of profiling. and say that every such person gets special kinds of screening before they get on a plane coming to the united states when they are not citizens of the united states itself. that's number one. and number two, he didn't change his view on whether or not someone like this guy should be charged in a criminal court and given fifth amendment rights. i'm convinced that he should first be treated as an enemy combatant and
and united states are going to continue to cooperate so as to be more effective in preventing radical islamic terrorism and prosecuting it when it arises. we shared information with secretary napolitano. and in due course, people spoke and your contributed to that debate. we also came up with an joint statement. it's a eu-u.s. statement. it's an important resolution. it's based on aviation security in particular. and you'll get that text at the end of this press conference. we mention a number of points that are dear to us all. we're talking here about the risk of terrorists, basically the same risk on both sides of the -- i think we want to protect our principals and values. our way of life. and those attacks of course by terrorism. we also share -- say that we share responsibility for fighting terrorism to ensure safety and security for our citizens. i think we all share many of these international values. we talk about a number of objectives and measures. objectives have a lot to do with aviation security. if we've learned anything from the spoiled attack over detroit is that flighted stil
been this delay. >> the former president of the united states, bill clinton, take it, has been spending time with the president today at the white house. what do weigh know about this? >> you know, it is interesting because we saw him come here to the white house to have a meeting with the president. we asked about that when we saw him arrive here. we were told that he came and was simply in town. and came here to stop by and meet with the president and also meet with other officials here at the white house. we don't know if he's still here. . beyond that we don't know anything else about that meeting. it does seem interesting the timing of this while this is all taking place, the former president, bill clinton did come by the white house. >> stand by. we will be getting back to you. once again, we are awaiting the president. he's supposed to come out around 4:30 p.m. eastern, 27 minutes or so from now. let's bring in our -- our panel, national security contributor, fran townsend, former homeland security adviser to president bush. also with us, national security analyst peter bergen. s
the united states and china's security relationship and encouraged by the joint statement that raumted from the president's recent visit to china. i welcome the administration's efforts to increase u.s. and china relations and cooperation in areas of common interests ranging from counterterrorism and nonproliferation to energy security. we must work together with china for the settlement of conflicts and reduction of retentions that contribute to global and regional instact including denuclearization of korean peninsula and the situation in south asia. i particular welcome the administration's support for increasing military to military contacts i've long viewed contacts is essential. it builds trust, promotes understanding, prevents conflicts and it fosters cooperation, and given my own visits to china in recent years i know how important these relationships are. looking back at u.s./china security cooperation under the previous administration, there are positive steps, but there's still much progress to be reeved. in the new administration will continue to face many challenges and i remai
that they could take appropriate measures. in their path on the way back into the united states. but we have since the incident we have had numerous conversations with the ceo's of carriers, the secretary will be meeting with the head of-- in geneva on this trip she is going to today after the hearing with you, and we will be having a discussion with airline carriers as to how we can all work together to improve the security of the system. >> carriers have indicated that information regarding passengers visas dad this is not available in real time when a passenger checks in at the airport. we will actually be taking addresses and other similar problems. >> so, the visa revocations and these are refusals or did nylz are checked prior to boarding an individual. bair check this part of the preflight screening process that is ongoing and has been ongoing for some time. >> okay, so do you think there is an issue with them not having this visa information in real time? >> the state department uploads all of these issuances that it makes to databases that are coming that we share with the law enforcement
focus by the united states on the problems of terrorism and in giving assistance to the government of yemen and following 2003 when there was a sense that al qaeda had been defeat indeed yemen, much of that dropped off. the amount 06 attention, the amount of resources that we gave to yemen dropped off significantly. and since 2006, with the reconstitution of al qaeda in yemen, only platedly has the united states sort of focused again on the problem there and of course the reason why we're talking about it this morning is because omar farooq aomar that took took omar farooq kathwari was coming from yemen. caller: my question is how long have we been with this war against yemen? i mean, i don't mean to go to a conspiracy theory but i read in ha general petraeus and another went down there so when tough head of arms services committee go to yemen, they are not just going to see if it's -- >> well, i wouldn't characterize it at all as a war in yemen. and senator mccain is my former boss. i worked for him for 5 1/2 years on foreign policy and so i can state categorically what was on his
there is not dissimilar from the screening in the united states, and the screening that abdulmutallab went through was not that dissimilar. we want more explosive detection, more technology. other airports have resisted some of those items, because of other concerns that they have about privacy, for example. this incident is serving as a catalyst to reopen that dialogue, particularly with the airports and countries where we have a large throughput of passengers to the united states. >> i want to get back to that. i assume that there will be another round of questioning. i was shipped off of this to something else why have you here. we all know what has happened in haiti over the last seven to 10 days, it has been devastating. there is an issue about adoption potential, haiti children who had been left without parents. we have about five families here who have completed paperwork to get the children from haiti. and yet they are being held up. i need to get a commitment from you that the citizenship and immigration services will work with my office to help expedite our ability to get those kids out.
unit. the united states is a major contributor to the afghan reconstruction trust fund. for those of you have been concerned about the effectiveness of the donors, i would suggest that you looked at this as an example of something that has shown the effectiveness as a good instrument. i would just talk about what is new. as mentioned, until now, we have been responsible for about $7 billion in the execution of development and assistance programs -- assistance programs since january 2002. we were there a few weeks after the taliban were dispersed. this was at the end of 2001. we have another $2 billion for this year and i expect that this will go higher. one thing that we will be focusing heavily on his job creation. the major element of this -- this is agriculture. we agree on that completely and we shared a briefing with the press a few weeks ago. this is a partnership with the state department and the u.s. department of agriculture, along with the national guard units and the development teams in afghanistan. in the case of afghanistan, we're trying to support a policy for afgha
-election to the united states senate. on each of these occasions, i have begun my remarks by observing that every important journey in life begins and ends at home. today is no exception. what is different about today, however, is not to announce the beginning of yet another campaign for the united states senate, but rather to announce that after 35 years of representing the people of connecticut and the united states congress, i will not be a candidate for re-election this november. i want to begin these very brief remarks by expressing my deepest gratitude to the wonderful people of connecticut for the remarkable privilege of being elected eight times over the past four decades to our national assembly. you have honored me beyond words with your confidence. let me quickly add that there have been times when my positions and actions have caused some of you to question that confidence. i regret that. but it is equally important that you know that i have never wavered in my determination to do the best job for our state and our nation. i love my job as your senator. i always have, still do. howeve
associate broadcasters come a familiar face to c-span viewers. desert in the united states senate from 1996 to 2008 and he was on the covers committee during that time which is very much involved in telecommunications policy. our guest reporter this week, john edgerton. i want to start really so much but not communications but with supreme court decision this week. and i'm going to ask you what they're ruling on campaign finance means for your members. >> guest: well, i probably should just admit i never voted for mccain so i actually think it's a good decision for freedom of speech. ultimately you can't get on tv or radio without paying for it. broadcasters have lots of costs and production of content. and the american people rely on tv and radios and ultimately i suspect the means there will be more political advertising. but i think the best part of the ruling was full disclosure. i think the more that's disclosed, the american people can make judgment as for who is for whom and why. and an informed citizenry is the best. i think it does help in terms of retirement advertising is down. >
the american people, seized the air-traffic system, causing the united states to spend much more money on screening and personnel. suggesting again to the american people that their government cannot protect them. these are choices between bad actions. host: let's hear from one of the callers. ernest, good morning. independent line. caller: sir, i want to find out if you are one of the good cia guys. you say we are not -- you say that we are fighting an enemy that does not exist. al qaeda is a name that we gave them, they did not give it to themselves. i do not know how in tune you are with the last attempt of a terrorist attack. could you explain to the people what a false flag operation is? then i would like to know this -- during the reporting of the past terrorist attack, eyewitness accounts have been suppressed. we are talking about the well- dressed gentleman that helped the accused hijacker or bomber to get on the plane, past security, by passing it all with no passport, no identification, no visa. we are talking about the gentleman that was on the flight the entire time. host:
into this al qaeda narrative that says that islam -- the united states is at war with islam. we have to be very careful. it's that narrative that feeds the ranks and builds the ranks of al qaeda. >> reporter: this afternoon, the council on american/islamic relations said the new guidelines amount to racial profiling, though the tsa says the majority of all travelers come to the u.s. will get enhanced screening, not just those from the 14 countries named. wolf? >> do you get the sense this is just the latest step that more are on the way? >> this is definitely an evolutionary process. they want to take some steps immediately. there will be reevaluations, new intelligence that come in, and things will change, i'm sure. >> thank you, jeanne. >>> let's get to the white house where the terror threat is the president's most urgent priority. he's back from vacation. our dan lothian is standing by. dan, the president is getting some high-level briefings today, getting ready for a full-scale meeting with his top advisers tomorrow? >> reporter: he is, wolf. first of all, the president getting an update f
. >>> the president of the united states getting ready to address the nation from the white house. as soon as he goes to the microphone, you'll hear what he has to say on the failed terror attack in detroit, outside detroit on christmas day. we'll go there live, you'll hear everything. in the meantime, let's check in with jack cafferty. he has today's "cafferty file." >> some say it's past time to begin profiling passengers. the u.s. is demanding better koreaning from places like iran, pakistan, saudi arabia, yemen, the usual suspects. the screening is to include things like full body scans, patdowns, searches of carry-on bags, and explosive detection technology. from the school of common sense comes the idea it makes sense to more thoroughly screen passengers who come from cunning where they may have been exposed to radical islamic teaching, but improved technology isn't the answer. the head of security for el al, says we need better questioning of passengers. he suggests hiring well-educated, highly trained agents, who know what to look for. he says profiling isn't about single out certain ethnic g
-span is a person under the law of the united states and constitutional holding. here is why -- if the fcc and fbi were to blow through these doors right now and turn off all the cameras and a subpoena your files, it would be c-span -- it cannot vote, it is not a citizen, and yet everyone would recognize that that is a fundamental violation of the rights of c-span. why? because at the end of the day, c-span, just like any other association of individuals, it is an association of the people that make up the entity. this is very important. we cannot skip past the idea that associations of individuals have their rights and keep it short shrift. have to be respected in a democratic republic. with regard to george sorus, campaign finance law requires them to spend independently all he wants, but the sec investigated import i believe two years for a book -- the fcc investigated him out for i believe two years for a book he wrote about george bush. if we are deciding if a book should be banned or if books are illegal or if books are not part of our debate, whether by george soros or any other individual,
, guatemala and into the united states. these were hazardous journeys. in the introduction you heard some instance there was some 17000-mile journey. one of the ships i'm going to talk about, the golden venture, had been at sea for 120 days by the time the passengers got here. they had been in a hold of the ship for 120 days. that didn't mean anything to me. i didn't give it much thought. 300 people, in a space probably if we started at the shelf there and connected to the wall over there, would be smaller than this base. for 120 days, and i was trying to find historical analogues for other big wedges. i thought what about the mayflower? that came to plymouth with all the pilgrims. in 1620, how long were they a seat? they were at sea for 60 days. and the people on the golden venture for 120. the problem is some of the ships were not seaworthy, and sometimes they would overturn. people would go into debt to pay really enormous fees in order to come here to the united states. in the 1980s, you had to pay a snakehead was $18000. by the 1990s when they start moving people on the boats, the pr
's interesting. the bank of the united states is in some ways not the federal reserve. they don't have a currency but they're more powerful than the federal reserve today. it was a private in part privately owned stock was quite valuable. basically they controlled the money supply because they lend money to the state banks which were issued a lot of currency and the interesting thing is the bank of the united states was hiring senators, congressmen, senators to be there to represent and give speeches on their behalf. >> host: heaven forbid. >> guest: it is actually sitting members of congress it is the power of the bank had although i think a lot of economists think the bank did a good job because of its chairman nicholas biddle, the fellow from philadelphia who did a very good job but jackson hated elite is and what he saw as the corruption of the bank. >> host: and then congress passed a small probing and feed it -- vetoed it. >> guest: it's very interesting. until jackson, president hadn't vetoed many bills but they thought he could only use it for on a constitutional laws of the president of
it it will get a full patdown before boarding any flight to the united states. laura ingle is live at newark international airport. i was in that airport last night and flying in from the cotton bowl in texas and landed in newark and had no idea what was going on. they took our plane for a couple of hours over to a holding place and when we walked into the airport, laura, you and i travel a lot for business. i have never seen a flood of people in an airport like that in all my born days. it was so cold outside that everybody who needed to be rescreened was let inside and waiting for security. you couldn't move. it was a mess. >>> definitely looked like a night. >> well, i talked so long that we lost our satellite. jinx on you. maybe we will get it right back. the thing with that last night was and we knew it at the time when we landed we went straight to fox news.com and find out, though the pilot didn't know it, fox news.com was telling us that a man had been inside security, many of you probably heard this story but the man was inside the sterile zone and walked outside and came back. peop
an executive order granting interpol and certain rights and immunities here in the united states. some are wondering if that has caused an opening for interpol to have extraordinary police powers in the united states. a requested it? -- who requested it? >> the executive order updated interpol's status based on the fact that within the fast five years -- past five years they have opened an office to assist in the type of information sharing between governments that we all know that is so important. all that does is simply bring them and given the same privileges and responsibilities that many other international organizations have in this country like the iea, imf, the red cross. >> it does not give them police powers? >> absolutely not. >> can you tell me whether any questions that took place here at the white house questions whether or not he would be tried as an enemy combatant? >> whether the conversations took place here at the white house? >> whether the 23-year-old should be tried as an enemy combatant. >> i would say a lot of subjects were covered in the situation room in terms
in the way of enforcement funds. er intoo. we have over six million employers in the united states. zero. this is going to change. all right. i want to spend the rest of the time that i have talking to you about a signature effort for and the assistant secretary. that is detention reform. there is no more serious effort underway at i.c.e. than this. it is myçó personal priority an frankly, i think it is going to mark my time and tenure as accident secretary. for the nay sayers, the conspiracy theorists, the hardened critics, mark my words this is a sustained aggressive effort to transform immigration detention. there is no going back, period. my foot is in the path. we are going to do this whether people believe me or not. . . .no carrierringconnect 1200 the warrants detained. and the and this is not about whether not we are going to detain people. we are. this is about how we detain them. why do i believe we need to reform? in a nutshell, here is why. weeded teen approximately 32,000 people a day in the united states. that translates to roughly 380,000 people a year. but right now we
not on the no-fly list. >>> new rules went into effect for travelers flying to the united states from overseas. all passengers from or traveling through 14 countries considered high-risk are to receive full body patdowns and have their carry-on luggage opened and inspected. let's bring in tom costello. the new rules took into effect today. you were detailing how intense the security was, even yourself patted down head to toe. >> i was coming in from brussels, not on the list of countries that are considered high-risk. but nonetheless, perhaps an indication of what you can expect if you're traveling from one of those countries or even with enhanced security in europe. they did a patdown from my shoulder to my toes and around my waist. they had my open up my belt. the officer literally took his hands and felt inside my jeans around my waist, only my waist, but checking to see if i was wearing anything there. once we were on the flight the captain turned off the map about halfway across the atlantic ocean and 25 minutes or so before landing, all seat belts were secured and nobody was allowed to g
of friends, but there would be an african- american running for president of the united states, that there would be a woman running for the presidency, that there would be a jewish museum in new york that had such a place of prominence, and that people of all faiths are coming to in humility and appreciation. for me, the relationship between fayed and social justice -- faith and social justice hinges on imaginationfaonith -- on imagination. faith this may be reality. it is a cheap. with work, with struggle, but it begins with vision. i think this is why it is the first four words of martin luther king's famous speech that resonate mostly with us. i have a dream. it is that ability first to be able to say that the reality that we are living in -- and when we talk about social justice, we're not talking about simple change. it is not a question of changing one relationship or one wall. deeply affecting the social structures, economic structures, all that at all different levels and regulations, municipalities, counties, laws, how many changes had to happen in society 40 years it
with colorado district attorney and united states attorney in colorado to ensure the cases were pursued by the most effected meaned. my office focused on enforcement by deceptive advertising on local borrowers and egregious cases. we examined the advertising of dozens loan originators for act violations. seize and assist letters went to those advertisers who were not disclosing an apr or who are disclosing inaccurate apr. by late 2006, our newspapers were full with option payment a.r.m. loan. they failed to disclose the borrowers would experience if they made over the minimum payment. they were led to believe they were buying a fixed-interest rate when only the first monthly payment was at the advertised rate. we issue subpoenas and conducted numerous depositions. the witness told us the teaser rates really quote, made the phones light up, unquote. it was clear that thousands of colorado borrowers got into the loan without knowing the true nature, the significant negative amityization that they were added and the penalties that came with the loan. a number went out of business. we reach
, this is a large community, one of the biggest concentrations of arab americans in the united states here in the detroit area. muslim americans out to say, essentially these acts of what abdulmutallab is accused of doing should not be done in the name of islam. said not in our name. said they were americans if abdulmutallab or people like him wanted to come and kill americans, they should kill them first. >> nbc's john yang. john, thank you very much. if anybody thought you saw a misspelling in the sign. you're right. it does say nigerians support persecution of terrorists, they meant to say prosecution. john, as always, we appreciate it. >> president obama ordered intelligence agencies to take a series of steps designed to streamline sharing of information and avoid the mistakes that led to the christmas day bombing attempt while admitting there is no foolproof way to keep america totally safe. the president said agency reports showed a lack of coordination as well as a failure to connect the dots despite having information needed to stop that plot saying he's not interested in the blame

of more attacks on the united states and praises suspected terrorist u man farouk abdulmutallab, calling him, quote, a hero fighter. the white house says it cannot confirm as of yet the awe thoantivity of this tape we will be live at the white house with the latest. good morning, molly. >> reporter: the tape is not authenticated but officials tell us there's never been a fake tape from the terrorist leader, a u.s. official tells us that osama bin laden appears to be trying to attach himself to the underwear bombing operation, calling suspect u man farouk abdulmutallab a hero. al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula took responsibility for that bombing on christmas day, but the intelligence community doesn't think that the central al-qaeda group necessarily gives orders to al-qaeda in the arabian peninsula, that they may have shared ideology but they don't necessarily cooperate tactically. now, in the tape, bin laden also says that america can never dream of living in peace unless there is peace in palestine. >> it is unfair that you enjoy a safe life while our brothers in gaza suffer greatly.
statements relative to the united states' position on the issue with the bombing and additional security that is takiki place right now at airports around the world. as you know, from have been increased security measures put in place at airports for people entering the united states, including patdowns, additional screenings and some cases they are hand checking luggage and going through every, single item that's inside a piece of luggage before allowing it to be put on board an therapy is inbound for the united states. the president, of course, was in hawaii at the time of this bombing, the attempted bombing of the flight that arrived in detroit, michigan a couple of weeks ago, and he has made strong statements in terms of what happened and why it happened. a lot of finger pointing has been going on for the past week or so over who is responsible for allowing this passenger to get on board with explosives in his underwear. you'll recall a gentleman from africa was on his way to the united states and attempted to ignite a substance packed in his clothing. people on board the flight wres
about the airport situation. we know that aid is here in the united states. people are ready to bring in supplies. can they even land at the airport? >> that's one of the difficulties here. the airport luckily infrastructure wise is okay. the runways are okay. the problem is the control tower suffered damage and there's also an air traffic control issue as well. flights on a limited basis can get in there. that's good news the airports weren't damaged and they saved many people. military flights can most likely get in there. remember, there's a danger because you can military helicopters, relief helicopters, small planes in the area with very limited air traffic control. you don't want to see some kind of air disaster over port-au-prince where more people are killed. so the airport is open. the u.n. says the airport is operating but on a very limited basis at this point. >> jeff rossen, thank you very much. >> much of haiti's national palace has been flattened. again the palace was considered one of the sturdiest buildings in port-au-prince. at the top before the quake hit on the bott
